Update August 15, 2017
Bronson Boulevard Construction
This project started in mid July and will realign the south leg of US 18/Bronson Boulevard intersection, add right turn lanes for US 18 eastbound traffic turning onto Bronson Boulevard and the Southwest Wisconsin Technical College driveway, and add a by-pass lane for US 18 westbound traffic. This project has a scheduled completion date of August 19, depending on the weather. US 18 will be open to traffic, motorists may encounter lane closures. South Bronson Boulevard is currently closed to traffic. Access will be maintained to adjacent businesses and property owners. Access to Bronson Boulevard will be maintained as long as possible to accommodate only emergency vehicles and closure times will be coordinated during construction.
2017 Street Construction
Construction season in the City of Fennimore is underway. Streets on the list for next year include 4th Street (from Garfield to Jackson), 2nd Street (from Monroe to Roosevelt), Monroe Street (from 2nd to 3rd), Coolidge Street (from 7th to 8th), and 11th Street (from Monroe to Roosevelt extended).
Underground work has been completed on all streets. Street crew will be working behind the underground crew working on removing old curb and gutter and putting in new gravel base. The street dept. is currently working on Monroe St. and will then move to 4th St. The curb & gutter has been installed on 11th and Coolidge Streets. They will head to Monroe and 2ns Streets next and will finish with 4th Street. We are anticipating being finished with paving by the end of September.
Waste water Treatment Plant Construction
Major construction on the existing waste water treatment plant (WWTP) has started and will last for about two years. Construction at the plant will not interfere with the day to day operation of the plant.
